Setting up a deal with Outbrain offers exclusive benefits that you cannot access anywhere else. Outbrain’s unique Smartad formats dynamically fit into the organic content that the consumer is engaging with. With a range of ad types, marketers are able to accomplish goals across each step of the marketing funnel.
Outbrain’s integrations with publishers are 100 percent direct, hard-coded site-wide. Outbrain’s technology is implemented directly onto the publisher’s page, giving us proprietary owned and operated inventory that’s initiated upon page load.
When using Outbrain’s deal offerings, you have access to hand-picked inventory that’s been curated to meet a wide range of advertiser goals. Our team also provides full campaign set up and troubleshooting guidance to ensure your deal performs as best as possible.
There are several standard deal options to select from, with custom pricing and reach information by country. Each deal will be effective for different types of goals. Therefore, we’ll work with you to first understand your advertising goals, desired targeting strategy and budget.
From there, we can make an informed recommendation on the deal type and bid that you should leverage to achieve your goal. The “Floor CPMs” included in the Rate Card are just that — minimum bids. This means that you may need to bid a higher CPM, based on your goals.
